The Australian Marine Conservation Society www.marineconservation.org.au a non-profit organisation protecting Australia’s oceans since 1965 has just launched an Australia’s Sustainable Seafood Guide iPhone App!
We all like to eat fish and seafood, indeed we take it for granted, but it’s now time to address some serious issues our oceans have and the fact is, the fish is running out and the ocean is in a VERY bad way.
To quote the company overview:
“We surf it, swim it, dive it, love it. And now we need to LOOK AFTER IT. The sea has played an important role in many Australian’s lives, its’ life and beauty invigorates our body, inspires our mind and nourishes our soul. But the sea that we know and love is changing. Once treated as a dumping ground and considered inexhaustible, our oceans are now in crisis and need our help.”
“The Australian Marine Conservation Society (AMCS) is that help. As a not-for-profit charity, we create marine national parks, save our ocean wildlife and make our fisheries sustainable. Support AMCS today and together we will secure healthier oceans for tomorrow.”
